“Good Location, Price, and Staff but Disappointing Rooms”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Booked this hotel last minute as our previous booking for another hotel was mistakenly cancelled. We saw that this hotel had a great price for 2 nights and so we booked it.

When we saw the rooms, we immediately knew why it was so cheap. The rooms were old, extremely dusty, and had a smell. It felt like a moldy, damp smell, but we couldn't verify as we didn't see any signs of mold. The rooms were especially dark. The bathroom was clean and spacious, but the bath tub was small. The carpet was old and dusty. It felt as if dust would rise everytime we stepped on it.

In addition, the rooms were very stuffy and hot. We asked the management why there was no air-conditioning and they told us that there was a law in Italy regulating the use of AC only in the summer months so it couldn't be turned on in May. We found this hard to believe and as our later hotels in Florence and Rome all had A/C, we felt that the hotel just wanted to save costs. Thus, we had to resort to opening all the windows to get rid of the heat.

The bathroom also had a really annoying motor that kept running and was noisy until shut off.

The staff were otherwise very courteous and helpful. The breakfast was pretty good and they had some friendly servers.

The hotel is also really close to the Repubblica metro station and to Milano Centrale train station.

I wouldn't come here for a long stay or for vacation, but 1 to 2 nights is okay. This is a good hotel for young travellers looking for a cheap deal.

Hotel located in a 15 minute walk from both duomo and Sfortsa castle (on the top of the triangle). The room was very dark, small and not very clean. But the price of hotel is good and the breakfast really well, plenty and tasty.
We traveled by train, so we enjoy that the hotel is 10 minute walk from central station.

Staff at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is plentiful and good, and the cleaning is great. It can be seen that the hotel has a good management. For your money you get adequate value. I highly recommend this hotel which is situated in an convenient location very close to the metro station “La Reppublica”. In the same building in which the hotel is, there are two good restaurants: "La Bistecca" and "Friends." Both we visited and we were very satisfied with the food and the reasonable prices.

The staff were friendly and helpful the room was dilapidated but close to train station so handy, price was ok...wouldn't choose it for a long stay but it was ok for an overnight stay. Bed was comfy, breakfast was ok too but nothing special.

Room Tip: One away from the front of the hotel otherwise can be a little noisy.

It is a honest hotel with good breakfast and service. Our room was a little old, but at all it was a good price x localization choice.
Brera is a great neighborhood full of live and restaurants. You can go by walking in 15 min till Duomo.

i was here for a 'trip down memory lane' meeting a Swiss friend of mine as we often travelled to Italy from Geneva in the 1980s. The staff were very friendly but my room was very very small and immediate vicinity not very pleasant. Not far from metro Republica which was good. However, on the day of departure I found a lovely restaurant next door - after not finding a restaurant recommended by reception - 'La Bistecca' - really good food and wine and not expensive. Not bad for just two nights.
